There are exceptional values available now on Homes and Investment Properties at the beach, the Palos Verdes peninsula and the surrounding areas.  Avoid competing with multiple offers and having to offer more than the asking price to purchase these homes. Combine the great values available today, with the low monthly payments provided by extremely low interest rates, and it's clear . . . The Time To Buy Is Now!

It's possible you may have heard or read, "prices are going to be lower next year."  Mike suggests the following:

A.    Simple Supply & Demand - No one knows what's going to happen with prices, or when, especially with beach property - a unique market. Demand is generally high (many people want to live at the beach), and supply is low (there are few beach properties and only a few available for sale at any given time). 

B.    OK, Let's Say Prices Do Go Down - How long do you plan to live in the home you buy now?  3 years, 5 years, 10 years or longer?  Unless you plan to sell the home that you buy now, next year, whether prices go up or down in the next year is irrelevant.  Do you think prices for beach homes will go up or down during the time you plan to own the home?  History would suggest that prices of homes in our area will continue to increase over time.

C.    What If Prices Go Down, But Interest Rates Go Up? - Even if the homes are priced lower, your monthly payment may be higher for the same home, or property in the same price range.

D.    If You Have A Home To Sell Before Buying, Everything Is Relative - Yes, it's possible the price of the home you want to purchase may be less next year, but if it is, the value of the home you are selling, will be lower also.
